    I am interested in purchasing a set of 44" ground hawgs that Max has for sale. Only major problem is he is in NC and I am in NY. Has anyone ever shipped a set of tires before? Any ideas on how much these things weigh, there are no rims...? Is there a place I can look this up online? I looked at fed ex and it says they are too big to ship. I figure it can't hurt to at least look into it. Thanks once again all.

    You call that dirty!?

    Try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.forwardair.com>http://www.forwardair.com</A>. They've gotten me the lowest rates by far.
    Good luck,

    I think the cheapest way would be to get one of the guys on this site to bring them... http://www.ytmag.com/hauling/hauling.htm
    they mainly are hauling tractors but most are looking for anything to haul back instead of going one way empty, there rates are great, and there is usually someone going just about everywhere in the country, just make sure you tell them to put a Big Chain thru the tires with a big lock on it, so nobody walks away with them 44's....just my 2 cents...ED
